Everyday. And if you don't take the HUD adjusted, they will reassign and you pay the difference. You would think the fact that no other contractor will do it for that price would justify yours but no, they just back charge.

Please correct me if I am wrong but this is the 'Property Preservation' section of CT correct? The original post was asking a question about a national named Five Brothers correct? I missed the part where the OP was asking for oppinions about weather or not people that do not work in this industry thought it was shady....

uuuh, I'm sorry but that isn't legal, besides being unethical. If you submit a bid, and the amount gets changed...it's no longer your bid and you have a legal right to decline to perform, WITHOUT being subjected to a chargeback.

I'd hire a lawyer and get any monies charged back refunded. Kinda goes without saying you probably won't get any more work, but if they're treating you like that, why would you want any more work from them?

In fact, after you sic the lawyer on them, if they fire you, sue them for firing you.

BE WARE . Five brothers is starting to show their TRUE colors. I had one rep tell me that 60 gallons of paint was considered 1 cube of debris. NOT HAPPENING. I responded that 60 gallons of paint is 360 to dispose and they were going to pay me what it cost to dispose of or get another contractor to do it. Invoices adjusted and not being able to discuss why they were was a MAJOR reason I told them to head to the curb. Their yard prices were good though. So if you go to COSTCO and get a pallet of aspirin to deal with their attitude and constant adjustments more power to ya. A cheese burger in paradise is my remedy.
